  • Carbon Monoxide Hazards Identified by Innovative IAQ Test Kit

    Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, non-irritating, but potentially lethal gas produced during the combustion of liquid, solid, and gaseous fuels. CO may be produced from any furnace fired by fuel, wood stoves, kerosene heaters, gas stoves, and fireplaces. Other common sources include exhaust from motor vehicles, and emissions from charcoal grills and fuel-powered yard ...

  • ASTM D3849 - 07(2011) Standard Test Method for Carbon Black—Morphological Characterization of Carbon Black Using Electron Microscopy

    Carbon black morphology significantly affects the transient and end-use properties of carbon black loaded polymer systems. A carbon black's particle size distribution is its single most important property, and it relates to degree of blackness and rubber reinforcement. For a given loading of carbon black, blackness and reinforcement increase with smaller particle size. Aggregate size and shape ...

  • LA Testing demystifies LEED testing

    LEED testing for indoor air quality is made simple by California’s dedicated environmental laboratory network. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) established criteria that became a primary tool in rating and certifying new and existing building structures. An official LEED certification increases the value of the property as operational costs of the facilities are usually much lower. ...


  • Testing Environment

    During the summer of 2012 I was one of the lucky, if undeserving, torch bearers for the London Olympics. The fact that a UN bureaucrat was given such an honour owes much to the growing importance of the environment in sport worldwide. Since 1994, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) has been working ever closer with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to raise the 'green' bar of the summer ...

  • Tracking your carbon footprint

    An innovation called Carbon Hero may help reduce global warming by making people more aware of their carbon footprint. Regional prize winner in the 2007 European Satellite Navigation Competition, sponsored by ESA’s Technology Transfer Programme, the device uses satellite navigation technology to track journeys. Concerned about global warming, many people are now looking for ways to reduce ...

  • Are carbon nanotubes the `new asbestos`?

    The demand for carbon nanotubes is increasing because they have unusual properties, such as unique electrical properties. However, their needle-like shape is similar to asbestos, raising questions about their safety. A recent study conducted on mice indicates that a specific type of carbon nanotube does have asbestos-like effects, but further research is needed to assess whether this is also the ...
